Can Dogs Eat Peaches?
Dogs can eat peaches, but be careful!
Dogs can eat peaches, but it is not always best for them. Like the majority of fruits, dogs can eat bananas, apples, oranges and others. Dogs should never have the pits however. A peach pit has cyanide in it which can be fatal for a dog. Some symptoms of this poisoning are dilated pupils, dizziness and excessive drooling. If you do decide to give your dog peaches, always give them pieces right from the flesh. If you have peach trees in your yard it is a good idea to make sure your dog cannot access them, where they may be able to eat whole peaches when not supervised.
Most people don’t realize that peaches are actually part of the rose family and originally from China, which is the largest producer, but they are now popular all over the globe. Peaches have many healthy benefits for people and dogs, as they are full of vitamins (including vitamins A and C), minerals, and antioxidants. Vitamin A is known to be a cancer fighter. Peaches are also low in calories, with a large peach having only 70 calories and 3 grams of fiber.
Peaches are also rich in an important protein that aids in tissue repair, which can be very helpful if your puppy plays too hard and cuts his skin. Peaches also boost immune system health, which can help heal dog’s skin and prevent any possible skin infections. They also aid in the function of liver and kidneys as they filter and help remove toxins from a dog’s system.
